Susan Beacham Money Savvy Generation
Fourteen years ago, we at Money Savvy Generation started out in the field of financial literacy with little more than an instinct that to cure the problems of financial illiteracy, we had to start very young.

When looking for “others” with whom we could share this journey, we found an organization called the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy. Having an Illinois link was a huge break for a start-up like ours. We found access to research, fieldwork, new programs and conferences where we could reach and influence our target audience. Jump$tart was more than a name to us – the organization literally helped jumpstart our business and our mission of helping kids get smart about money.

Today, we have reached over 1 million kids with the message of money choice and goal-setting. And it’s our privilege to work with others in the coalition to help them and their efforts towards our shared mission of financial literacy for students. Together we can and will do right by the next generation.
